View Full Version : [ubuntu] CD ROM error when installling from USB

July 10th, 2009, 01:08 AM
I'm installing Ubuntu server 9.04 from a USB drive and got an error during install that "No CD ROM drive detected" it prompts to try to load drivers from removable media but that fails with "Cannot read removable media or no drivers found"

My system doesn't have a CD drive. Since I'm installing from a USB drive why would this matter? It obviously seeing my USB drive since the install started and asked for language and keyboard settings.

I don't see an option to ignore and continue with the upgrade.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Does it say anything about not being able to mount CDROM? If so, it's a bug.
